Stephen Colbert’s impersonation of Peter Sellers as Dr. Strangelove is uncanny, and fabulously funny: it’s at the end of this very hilarious episode of The Word. I couldn’t stop laughing, Colbert has the accent down perfectly: this is 7 minutes of absolute comedic brilliance.
I think the character of Dr. Strangelove was based on Edward Teller, wasn’t it?
The latest roundup of education news on the Colbert Report is a riot; check out it out here: the whole program is really funny, but the education bit starts at 8:15, so scroll ahead to that part of the program.
The first 15 minutes of this episode of the Colbert Report are the absolute apogee of political satire and comic genius. It was my best laugh of the week!
I’m stunned that S.B. 1070 was signed into law by Arizona State Governor Jan Brewer today.
The last time living in Arizona was this embarrassing was in the early to mid 80s, when then-governor Ev Mecham cancelled the MLK holiday and referred to African-American children (I believe it was a group of kids assembled on the state capitol steps) as “pickaninnies”.
The best commentary on this sad state of affairs? As usual, during a recent Colbert Report broadcast; click here, the immigration story is 4 minutes into the broadcast.
Meanwhile, to my friends in AZ with more melanin than me: no DWB without proof of residency. Your drivers’ license may not be good enough to prove you’re here legally; and now you’ll have to pay yourself for any jail time you incur.
While it pains me to mention Sarah Palin here in my blog–I want to keep the vibe clean–Stephen Colbert did a FANTASTIC job last night lampooning her; watch the five-minute clip here.
This latest from the Colbert Report is absolutely hysterical.
